Going for the Gold

GOING FOR THE GOLD is the YMCA Foundation's annual fundraising black tie dinner and auction. Established in 1991, this event has grown to become one of the largest, if not the largest, one-night fundraising event in Sarasota. A sold-out crowd of almost 500 enjoys a sumptuous dinner, huge live and silent auctions, entertainment and dancing.
